Iconic Industrial-Rave Legends Lords Of Acid have never shied away from…well, anything, let’s be honest. But now they’re looking to team up with their legions of loyal followers to shed the restrictions of the label structure to release what is looking to be their most provocative album to date with the fan selected title Pretty In Kink. Not only are fans essentially the label for the unique project, and naming the album, but they’re creating the reward list, which we have to say might be the BEST opportunities for die-hard fans to collect the most desirable memorabilia

The initial goal of $32,000, which has already been realized, will cover everything involving the album release, however they have several stretch goals which will be tied to additional bonuses. Fans can make donations to receive rewards (below) and do additional ‘add-ons’ to personalize their reward packages. The campaign runs through January 7, 2017, and cards will not be charged until the project reaches the funding deadline.
From his first single, “I Sit On Acid”, released in 1988, to the present, Belgium’s Praga Khan remains one of the most innovative acid house musicians in circulation. Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. From the raw carnality of their 1991 release “Lust”, to the electro-thrash of 2012’s “Deep Chills” Lords of Acid has re-defined the pure pleasures of drugs, hedonism, and deviant sex for nearly twenty-two years. Now, despite numerous lineup changes, world tours, over 2.5 million album sales, and every possible point of crisis and conflict a band can face, Lords of Acid is returning to the unsuspecting again, this time with a new crew of deviants, dilettantes, and sonically transmitted diseases.
Through the suggestion of Rocco Corsari, the driving force behind the Lords of Acid Backstage Group, Lords of Acid launched a highly successful first stage of an ongoing Kickstarter campaign to fund their sixth studio album, Pretty In Kink, which is currently being recorded. The main focus on the newest installment was to make the album with the fans, not only by funding it, but through promotion and creative suggestion. Independent from label limitations, the unique approach allows full creative freedom, and establishes an alliance between the fans and the music. To achieve this truly groundbreaking partnership, the band will be doing video blogs from the studio, conducting polls on their social media, and giving updates on the recording and production through out the process. As the album is currently underway, fans can also expect tour dates in support of the release in Fall 2017.
